THEME: Go God’s way!
BY: Rev Fr Oselumhense Anetor (Uromi Diocese).
HOMILY FOR THURSDAY APRIL 28 2022
Acts 5:27-33; John 3:31-36
Have you ever had a moment when you got called by a superior authority, and told to stop what you were doing, even though you knew deep in your conscience that you were fighting a just cause? That’s exactly the situation the Apostles found themselves in today. The high priest had specifically warned the Apostles to stop preaching about Jesus. But they understood that the high priest was abusing his powers. Peter and the Apostles said in reply, “Obedience to God comes before obedience to men…”
Friends, St John tells us today that God is above all others. But in carrying out his will, we must learn to be charitable, even towards those who strive to frustrate our efforts. We must learn to RESIST evil like people who truly believe in Jesus Christ, and are interested in eternal life. It doesn’t matter who says we shouldn’t. What matters is following our consciences. Don’t stop fighting for truth, justice and fairness. Don’t stop preaching about Jesus and the power of his resurrection, don’t stop doing your best. God is watching us all!
Good morning dear. God bless your day ahead.
